For centuries, The Scottish Play has proved to be one of the most popular of Shakespeare’s tragedies. A cautionary tale of ambition and madness, Macbeth is a story filled with sex, magic, violence and death that has set alight the imaginations of millions of theatregoers across the globe. The classic story of free will versus fate has been played out in many different concepts, but this production aims to take the text back to its roots in a minimal and brutal adaptation.

David Shopland’s Macbeth is a sparse and gripping view of the play through the eyes of a grieving couple. This is a rare solo departure from visionary Creative Director of Blind Tiger Theatre, who has previously directed An Idle World at Trafalgar Studios and The Little Mermaid at Riverside Studios

This is not a story about war and witches, but the heartbreaking destruction of a marriage. It is a 400 year old domestic drama that highlights the same base emotions we all feel throughout our lives. This play’s horror lies in its humanity.
